Good MTB Dvd's?

I'm just getting back into MTB after a long hiatus...so I'm looking for some good (inspirational) stuff to watch that I can get from Netflix. Yes, I have already searched the forum - so far I have these:

Fundamentals!
A couple Chain Reaction's
New World Disorder
The Collective

Any other good stuff I should be looking for?

I agree that Fundamentals and Collective are must have's.

Roam and Earthed 3 will be coming out soon and I'm looking forward to both.

The Collective is great.

Maybe 'Jib' too, since it's pretty cheap now.

Collective and Off Road To Athens are must haves.

The Disorder series if you like people dropping and doing stunts are good to.

Definately Off Road to Athens. However keep in mind that it isn't a freeriding or big hit type video.

One of my favorites is the Drop Inn series. I bought the first season, need to pick up season two one of these days.

If yor're looking for a good instructional video, get "Performance Mountain Biking" by Ned Overend. It covers a wide range of info.

NWD3 is one of the more progressive ones in its time. 5 and 6 are decent. Collective just rocks my world still.

Thanks for all the feedback fellas...The Collective is supposed to get here tomorrow...I'm definitely anxious to watch it. Also ordered Off Road to Athens off Amazon - couldn't get it through Netflix, so it better be good for $27...

Kranked 5 is really good, all the NWDs that I've seen are excellent too (3,4,5,6) and the Earthed series (1,2,3) are of a high standard (Earthed 3 just blows me away).

gastro: Earthed 3 is already out.

It's been out in Europe for some time, but we haven't had it here in the States. Thanks for rubbing it in.


However, as luck would have it, my copy just got in from the distributor yesterday. If you like watching WC level dhers hauling ass, this movie is for you (and me). There's also this guy on there doing some of the most amazing trials stylie riding I've ever seen. Look out Leech.

edit: interesting soundtrack, too - everything from the Kennedys to Chemical Brothers to Manfred Mann(?).

Ok I just, finally, watched NWD6 disc 2. THAT rocked my world. Recon, crankworx and imo, some of the best footage in the video are on that dvd. NWD6 is worth it just by HOW much is in it. Amazing.

Ah, sorry mate. Yeah, the trials part was absolutely nuts, the guy had some serious skills.
I generally prefer much "harder" music for bike movies (think NWD 3 & 4) but I quite liked the Earthed series' soundtrack.
